am i the only one? - February 4th 2011, 11:45 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of self harm, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

So most people I have seen talk about cutting do it on there arms or wrists.
I do it on my stomach and sometimes my legs(calves not thighs).
Does any one else do it on their stomach/ legs?
I'm starting to think I'm the only one.

We do not fear death, we fear that no one will notice our absence. That we will disappear without a trace.

i do it on my stomach i find it easier to hide or on my side of my stomach and nothing is pushing on it

Life is too

Short to spend

It at war with


Iím catching stars in the sky because I am fixing the soul within me. May it be from the heart a girl broke years ago or my soul simply repairing itself as it was shattered on my walk on this earth. May the stardust fill those cracks within my soul making me brand new, but never forgetting who I once was.

I had a friend who does the cutting in the exact same places you just listed. It's ok to feel like you're the only one doing it in those places. Some people do it on their arms because it isn't as painful as your stomach and calves. You're just hardcore lol (:
Also i'm here if you just need to talk also .

Some things are beautiful because they are un-obtainable <3

Although I do it on my arms and wrists, I also do it on my stomach, thighs, and occassionally calves. (And my right hand.. I've started doing it on that a lot because no one asks about it)

I do it on my stomach and thighs. The only problem I have because of this is the fact that I show these places in the summer.

When I began, I did it on my thighs, but for.. weird reasons. When I started doing it more often, there was no preference. I did it wherever it was convenient. But now, my slip ups are usually around my hands because I know I use them a lot and I don't hide them. So, that way, I get my mini fill without 100% relapsing or without people realizing.

I've pretty much done anywhere. Agreed with everyone else though, stomach and thighs are much easier to hide... except for in the summer, not sure what's going to happen when that comes around again.
So no, you're not alone.

Back when I cut, I always cut on the legs, I never used arms, wrists or anything like that.

Since your question's been answered and there's little chance for variation, I'm going to close this thread.
